How it all started!

In 2020, the Parks and Recreation team designed Kentville Plays Kits. These kits were designed in a 3-kit sequence and have been created based on age – Youth 12-15, Youth 16+, Families and Seniors. The Kentville Parks and Recreation team created these resources to support community partners who were looking for ways to boost the mental, emotional, physical and social health of the community members that they serve. We’re happy to say that they’re finally ready to be shared with you!

If you are looking for a guided leisure education experience, we encourage you to take a look at the related documents to the right. Feel free to print these guides, gather the supplies and create your own kits – for yourself or for a friend or family member.
